Okay, so I took out the tonearm using the instructions from this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQK1FnHv9mo&t=55s
, and then tightened the screws in order to secure the tonearm, I put everything back, ( I had to use electrical tape as a replacement for the tape that covers the wire connected to the pitch adjustment, as I had ripped it trying to get it free) everything on the tonearm side is secured. However, when I tested with a record only the middle and right channel were playing, I kept basically fulling around with the wires until miraculously it played every channel and so far I haven't had a problem yet in that regard. Also, the first time I played a record after doing this the 33 1/3 was changing in speed rapidly , this was before I started fulling around with the wires, and around the time I had fixed the channel issue the pitch changing issue had stopped but I worry that it will happen again. What could have caused this? Do you know if it could possibly happen again? Also, I tried testing the tonearm anti skate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq2Rk7_i6hQ
and while it's still passable it seems like it got a little worse.
Edit: so after fooling around it looks like there may be a problem now with the wire for the left channel, the changing speed and anti skate don't really seem to be an issue, I'm just wondering what could be done for this. It's like, depending on the amount of tension or position of the left channel rca wire, it will work or not. It's working now and probably won't stop working until I mess with the wire again but I wanna see if there's a way to make it not a worry at all.
